  • How I store rods on the boat w/ treble hook baits

    Posted by bassboat1 on June 23, 2022 at 10:46 pm

    My rod lockers are too short for the gear I use, so I generally have a stack of 8-10 rigs on the left/front deck. I had the expected issues with crankbaits and jerkbaits tangling other rigs, and ripping my boat cover. I tried the [velcro envelopes](, but they don’t play well with rod sleeves. I also gave the [capsules]( a shot, but they’re fragile and don’t fit the bigger baits well. I’m currently storing them like [this]( (one of my son’s rod shown). Spinning the line around the guides pulls the bait in even closer, and everything is well clear of the braided sleeves. So far, so good:) Edit: Spinnerbaits and jigs get their single hooks hung onto the baitcasting reel hood, and I drop the T-rig bullet weight between the frame and the drag star, and they’re just as secure. I use a spinning setup for dropshotting – for that, I pass the weight under the pickup on the bail and use an envelope for the bait/hook up the rod w/ a shorter sleeve… Not ideal.

    Pros spin the line around the rod and when I tried it I saw why. Sounds like a plan. I also cut the bait off if I don’t think I’ll need it rest of trip
    because forces me to retie.

    Thats a good idea, thanks for sharing. I’ve seen jacob wheeler storing actually all of his baits this way and keep meaning to pick it up myself.

    I fish with my dog frequently and have nightmares about the day she stomps on a treble, although thankfully she’s pretty good about avoiding the rods these days.
